Effects of Protein Levels Fed During Winter on Subsequent Performance of Steers Grazing Tobosagrass

Carlos Villalobos, Carlton M. Britton, John S. Pitts

Abstract


The effect of level of supplementation on winter weight gain and subsequent spring performance was determined in a three-year study at the Texas Tech Experimental Ranch, near Justiceburg, Texas. One of the objectives of this research was to determin if level of supplementation might influence spring gain. Cottonseed cubes (41% crude protein) were fed during the winter seas to cross-bred steers grazing tobosagrass (Hilaria mutica) range. ...
